Pro-China MPs and pro-Democratic members of the Hong Kong Parliament clashed on Friday.

 

The brawl is a sign that political tensions are re-emerging in the former British Crown Colony, now an autonomous part of China, after curbing the coronavirus outbreak.

The brawl between members of the so-called Hong Kong Legislative Council followed an argument over the appointment of the chairman of an important committee.

MEPs shouted at each other and pushed each other during the session.

Some pro-China MPs also fisted with security to escort one of them out.

Beijing has accused Hong Kong’s pro-democratic elected representatives of “malicious” delaying techniques that would prevent them from voting on proposals.
